Yeah. I'm in a funk. No bueno.
I got a very exciting somewhat surprise phone call this evening.
Despite hearing constant helicopter lift offs and airplane landings, I got to hear my lover's voice.
Phone calls are sparse and rare so I loved every second of it.
He asked how I was. I said, "Just fine."
He asked again and I said, "Okay, I'm in a funk. A really bad one and I hate it."
I went on to tell him how I have all these ideas for stuff around the house but I just can't bring myself to head to Home Depot to pick up paint and drop cloths or to Walmart for an extension cord, or any of the other places I need to go to get the stuff needed for my projects. I then told him about getting a text from my handyman saying he couldn't make it over tonight. Then how in my head I was thinking, "Oh well good thing because I had no idea you had plans to come over to fix such and such thing tonight and you would have been ignored since I haven't showered in two days and I'm sitting bra-less in a wife beater full of holes because I have zero motivation to stand in the shower or clean the tub to sit in a bath."
His response? "Wow. So what you're saying is its just been another string of epic failures on your part?"
I love that man.
He makes no apologies but said he has to say something to get me out of my funk.
"Nothing you can say will get me out of my funk."
"Well what will?"
"Ha ha well then epic failure on my part because we both know I can't do that."
Oh well, I tried.
He really is so incredible.
Poor guys over there don't have internet OR water.
No water for at least a week.
Good thing I can't smell him.
He said everyone is pretty cranky due to the much, much longer shifts, no more days off, and next to zero contact with loved ones. Disgruntled is the word that was used. But as he was saying all this, I could still hear a smile in his voice and his buddies joking with him about being all lovey on the phone with me.
For those few minutes on the phone with my loverface, my funk vanished. We were talking (more like yelling and saying, "What?"), laughing, joking around, and just being us.
The phone call ends and guess what? Back to my funk.
